is technology. generally technology isn't a heavily regulated industry any way. and they don't really pay a high dividend. >> the question is will we see a end of year zell selloff as toward try to lock in profits when tax rates are lower verse us next year when they go up. but how high will they go up on the dividend payers? >> right now, president obama's propose al would have dividends taxed at ordinary income. that is substantially higher tax rate than the 15% tax rate that toward are enjoying right now. either way, we think that dividend yields will ultimately get dinged. as you mentioned, they have gotten hit. they were down something like 3% and the week ending just before the election. even in anticipation of that. it's hard to know. remember, a lot of dividend stocks are held in tax-exempt accounts, 401(k)s, pensions, endowments, foundations. we are dealing with a subset here. my sense is we will not sie a pull back because a lot of dividends aren't taxed to the extent you would think. >> good to have you on the program. thank you so much. >> thank you, maria. >> up next on the "wall st
would say the sector most insulated from increased regulation in the dividends would be technology. generally technology isn't a very heavily regulated industry anyway. and they don't really pay a very high dividend. >> the question is, are we going to continue to see an end of year selloff as investors try to lock in profits when tax rates are lower versus next year when they, of course, will go up. but how high will they go up on the dividend-payers. >> sure. you're right. right now, you know, president obama's proposal would be to have dividends taxed at ordinary income. that would be substantially higher tax rate than the 15% tax rate that investors are enjoying right now. and, you know, either way, we do think that dividend yields will ultimately get dinged. as you mention, they have gotten hit, they were down something like 3% in the weekended right before the election. so even in anticipation of that. you know, it's hard to know. i mean, remember, a lot of dividends stocks are held in tax-exempt accounts anyway. 401(k)s, endowments, pensions. so we're dealing with a subset h

technology company. certainly when you think about silicon valley and companies that have hit hard times. very view come through it and re-emerge. apple is one that we can all remember having done that. ibm. although not a silicon valley company but technology company. most recently perhaps ebay in a significant decline but i spoke to john at length on friday and it appears they have brought around their marketplace business in addition to continue strong growth at the paypal unit. it's difficult to do. when you come back to yahoo! you have to wonder how do they do it? >> is there an act two? cisco tonight almost every analyst on the street said they're going to miss. >> universal in both miss and then the guidance is going to be negative. david, when you spoke with stevenson, didn't you get the sense that the companies are done spending on anything other than amd on towers? >> they got to spend. you know, stevenson was very outspoken in saying fiscal cliff. we're not spending but we are. we're deciding to spend $14 billion over the next three years. they absolutely have to in order to c
corrections there, and things are becoming somewhat more interesting. so we're looking at technology and some other areas where we can have good visibility. >> what else apart from technology is on your list? >> i think some of the internet providers, some of the hardware providers have been hit particularly hard. we think that those areas provide not only very good balance sheets, but we think that as the market recovers next year, as the global economy eventually begins to turn around, we see better demand. ultimately, that's going to endure those kind of companies. >> apple has become a proxy for the market. market down 10%. apple down 10% or more at this point. would you buy apple here? >> i would. this is coming from a guy who hasn't owned much apple at all. right around here, again, sounds like a theme here. we have a tech stock selling at about a nine times earnings. believe it or not, it has a 2% yield. >> you're not concerned about some of the reasons why it dropped, mark? >> no, there's a whole list of reasons. i think the first one with the most weight in my mind is it's a proxy fo

. this next oil and natural gas ceo says we have the technology to do it while keeping prices low. david: gary evans, chairman and ceo of magnum hunter resources. they're into oil and natural gas and we welcome him here. gary, good to see you. gary, you know how it goes. whenever we find something of value immediately the government wants to come in and tax it more if they haven't tacked it at all yet. carbon tax the subject was raised with the president. do you expect, are you working into your projections possibility of having to pay more taxes to the government? >> i don't think there is any doubt with this administration being reelected that the bull's-eye is on our industry. it is unfortunate because the only gas industry is the one business in the united states that can bail this country out of the mess it's in. if everybody would just leave us alone, let us find the oil and gas we're discovering in the shale plays we can fix this country's problems. so taxing the industry is definitely something all executives in our business are worried about right now. liz: gary doesn't seem that bad
that are either increasing dividends or looking to initiate dividends in this environment. technology companies will be less likely to initiate dividends in that environment where you had a higher dividend -- tax on dividend rates as opposed to capital gains. that's the scenario to watch out for. >> last word to you, quickly. >> yes. you know, the thing we have to remember is that interest rates are very low. investors right now are all about generating income. and i believe that our politicians recognize that. i believe the corporations recognize that. so you can't change your strategy just because we may be seeing a change in tax rates. >> all right. you might be giving a little too much credit to politicians, but -- >> maybe. >> -- i digress. thank you for joining us. >> in the final stretch. market just went negative. we've given up those gains and then some with the nasdaq under pressure. >> after many beaten down years, housing is red hot. we'll deconstruct whether this hal rally can continue. >>> president obama vowing to veto any fiscal cliff bill extending tax cuts for people making mo

to the upside. housing stocks, not necessarily. you know, we like industrials. we like technology. we like global companies that are going to benefit as the global economy improves. we think the u.s. grows 2, 2 1/2% next year. the global economy grows 4% plus. cheryl: you also like the auto sector, which i think is interesting. i mean, again, those stocks have performed fairly well this year, but still gm under a lot of pressure, not where it needs to be frankly on the government's perspective anyway. >> right. we like the fact they will contribute to growth this year. whether they are the right stock and right way to play it, not so much. we like industrials generally, manufacturing as well and technology we think continues to be a very good play. cheryl: i mentioned some of the sectors that got hit last week, what do you think about defense right now? >> defense, i think, we were not playing defense big anyway. healthcare we're still concerned about for the obvious reasons, right? there's going to be a lot of pressure, a lot of constraints given what's going on in a macro sense. so, you

pressures and the uncertainties, and also other technology companies really did not have very good quarters as well. i thought the company did a very good job on execution, on cross control and market share gains. the fact that this company is grow revenues at 5.5% while its peers saw revenues decline 4.3% in the same time period, it really speaks to the market share gains that they're seeing and that the clear highlights to me were service provider video, retireless and data center all growing double digits nicely. >> kelly and i were talking about this earlier. cisco seems to sort of outperform -- seems to be an outliar. does well when others aren't and doesn't do well when others are. i'm wondering is that actually the case? because that's the appearance. and indeed whether we can take anything for the sector from this. >> i think the one thing that if you want to take away from cisco's quarter is that the u.s. enterprise for cisco grew 9%, versus 5% last quarter. that's the second quarter in a row where you saw acceleration. and this is a leading indicator for its broader businesses. th

there are interesting investment opportunities in technology, in home builders that have pulled back, but we're not quite there yet. i think we'll get that opportunity in the coming weeks. >> you think there will be a lot more volatility and what we've seen will continue? >> yeah, take a look at the lame duck sessions of the last 50 years. volatility is three times higher in lame duck sessions. so expect that. plus every one of them, we've seen the market decline. even with major accomplishments like increasing the debt ceiling. so still likely to see some down side. i don't being ythink you need t about missing it. the big he risk is being too early coming back in. >> what are the tech names that you like? >> in the technology sector, there's a lot of interesting opportunities. mainly those that export. china's growth is beginning to improve. they buy a lot of capital equipment from us. so it's the big names in technology that provide a lot of that export capital equipment that we think will buns back the strongest in the first. >> bob, another thing we've been talking about is the people h
of technology you guys have the ability to know how many you've sold. how many have you sold, paul? >> liz, you know, i have to let my good friends in nintendo make those announcements before we can make them. you know the same thing happens with black ops 2 and halo. we're very happy with the launch. never in history have we launched a console with the kind of market share we have and the power of rewards community of 21 million customers. so we're really excited about this console and this technology all the way through the rest of the holiday. liz: let's talk about it because the wiiu is the first new sort of hardware console in about six years as i understand it. the x-box has been hugely, hugely powerful, but here comes the wiiu. then you've got the ds-3 which is also nintendo. the question becomes, a $300 product is not cheap obviously. what is it about this particular hardware paul that has captured people's attention and forced money out of their wallets? >> you know, liz, our customers are looking for innovation. one of the things about the console gaming business is that it does go in
the dow jones industrial finds itself in the green. we have names like united technology, at&t, cisco, disney, and 3m. those are your leaders right then we have this, sandra on this story. two of the homebuilders reporting earnings this morning. as you can see, shares of beazer homes taking a big dive after a disappointing report. that stock is being hit today. shares also of dr horton are falling. even though the company beat earnings. the ceo warned about weak unemployment growth into next year and that will be hurting new home sales in his opinion. and everybody loves an underdog. and best buy looks to be turning the corner at least today. the company getting a boost after announcing their chief investment officer. and she's saying the company has big challenges but it is poised for a turnaround despite a rocky year. there's best buy for you on your screen. let's get to the floor show. we have traders standing by at the new york stock exchange, the cme group, and of course the nymex. first at the new york stock exchange, ben willis, happy veterans day to you. i think the w

taking over 40% premium. i looked into this. there is a name i like called carpenter technology. it has been around for a while. they just made an acquisition so they have the same access. their biggest market is aerospace, same as titanium. they are metal is all over the plane. i like it for that reason. i like it for valuation. the ceo this month was named the most profitable ceo out of 100,000 ceos around the world. i think it is just one of these undervalued names that you start to look at this space. aerospace energy, long-term play, i think this is a one for 401(k)s. connell: charles, see you next hour, i believe. nicole is that watching retailers for us. nicole: we will take a look at a few retailers. we will start with saks fifth avenue. they are coming out with numbers that are a little bit disappointing. profit was on the rise. the big picture is they noted a fiscal cliff playing into their numbers as well. and hurricane sandy. it really generates about one fifth of their revenues. that is a big, big player. a lot of stores had to close for at least one day and some for over a

rates and rigs. this technology is being deployed in such a wide area and so rapidly and with constantly changing technology that the issue for natural gas at this moment in terms of price isn't the depletion rate. it's the huge backlog of wells that have been drilled that haven't been connected to transportation networks to move it from the well head to the markets. so you have a lot of gas sitting there just waiting for the tap to be turned on and that will continue to happen because this is something that is changing the u.s. energy market and is something that at these prices is still profitable for the companies. >> before we let you go, what do you think they are saying in the halls of opec today about this report? >> i don't think halls of opec are that worried. china and the emerging market demand is not going to go away. it may not accelerate as quickly as some people had predicted. certainly the destination for oil from the middle east increasingly is going to be asia. it already has been. we are already looking at perhaps in the next five years according to this report today n
